Ashly AW8.2T+ AW Series Wall Mount Speaker DSP Enable Amplifiers 

The AW Series are made for both indoor and outdoor wall-mount applications.

Both dust and water-resistant, they are ideal for BGM use in bar/restaurants (including patios), Paging and BGM for retail stores, distributed audio in HoW, schools, sports/health clubs and public spaces. Highly efficient and durable, they complete the total Ashly solution when combined with Ashly’s DSP and DSP-enable amplifiers for the widest, most consistent coverage available in a small speaker. The AW Series is available in four model sizes: AW-2.1P 2.75” Full-range 6Ω speaker IP52 rated. AW-3.2P 3” 2-Way 8Ω speaker, IP-52 rated. AW-5.2T+ 5” 2-Way speaker w/Transformer, IP54 rated. AW-8.2T+ 8” 2-Way speaker w/Transformer, IP54 rated. Where extended low-frequency response is required, add the SP-12.1P 12” Subwoofer for full-range applications like DJ or Live Music Performance. Directivity Optimized Crossover integrated in all 2-way models and model-specific DSP presets available for Protea & AquaControl-enabled amps & processors. Wall-mounting hardware is supplied. All models are sold in pairs.

You liked the sound of AW 5.2 and AW 8.2…Now hear the + versions

A lot of smaller wall mount speakers in distributed systems never get to challenging sound levels.

We assumed that would be the case with our popular AW 8.2T and AW 5.2T.  But their sound quality is so good and their dispersion so complete that they were getting cranked up in bars, brew houses and clubs where mid-level SPLs from a distributed system came in handy.

So we redesigned the AW 8.2T and AW 5.2T  into the new AW 8.2T+ and AW 5.2T+ with beefier transformers. Nobody talks much about the transformers inside their 70-100V speakers (they’re hidden and they are “background” speakers after all). We are proud to.

AW 8.2T+ and AW 5.2T+ use audio-grade laminations.

All windings use heavy, high-insulated wire.

Cores are grain-oriented steel.

What’s the benefit?  Higher power handling with minimal insertion loss — as low as wall mount speakers costing twice as much. That leads to almost TWICE the power, and increased SPL without additional distortion. 

AW 8.2T+ and AW 5.2T+  can be trusted in applications where a distributed system needs more output (think bar during happy hour…or when home team football is up on the screens.

Wider sweet spot with Directivity Optimized Crossover

We designed our AW Series to meet or match the performance of more expensive on-wall speakers… yet at a price point that can contribute to a winning bid — and a satisfied customer. Here’s how

For this type of speaker, music and speech are equally important. Both rely on a large “sweet spot” and off-axis intelligibility. Many speakers strive only for ON-axis frequency response and pay too little attention to OFF-axis system response. 

Directivity Optimization, a new, proprietary approach to crossover design, significantly improves vertical axis response. More listeners on the extreme left and right can hear the spoken word better. Music in a restaurant or bar is more immersive and less directional. DOC avoids the lock-step “studio monitor” configuration that is less than optimal for longer-throw applications and creates a noticeably wider sweet spot that is perfect for speech throughout a room, patio or bar area. 

Custom DSP processing further improves AW performance.

While AW speakers provide ample performance on their own, Ashly’s powerful, easy-to-use Protēa and AquaControl™ DSP systems give you the opportunity to apply advanced EQ, FIRs, further X-over refinements, and delay to AW speakers, providing a wider, flatter frequency response across the coverage angle. These free downloadable presets give Ashly DSP processor units and processor-equipped amps the ability to realize the best possible sound without needing to manually adjust for any frequency response anomalies that might otherwise produce less than optimal results.

An integral part of the overall Ashly eco-system solution

The world doesn’t need another brand of ordinary wall-mount speakers. That’s why we developed a line with unique features and performance. Now you can spec an all-Ashly system with quality speakers that make beautiful music with our amplifiers and processors that feature Protēa and AquaControl™…and of course a range of wall controllers.

Precise Wall-Mounts

The AW Series mounts are as special as the speakers themselves. Designed to provide precise and repeatable horizontal and vertical adjustment, without fear of stripping and “sagging”. No more climbing a ladder to readjust. Installation made simple and secure.
